The Power of One
(Glorifying God devotions by Pastor Christopher Chia)
The greatest security we have to face the many unending insecurities of living in a fallen world is simple faith in the one and only true God who loves us.
The salvation story of the Bible is that Israel of the Old Testament never learnt the empowering assurance of a rigorous monotheism. She always suffered from the paralysing anxieties of polytheism.
Her spiritual problem, like ours, is not shallow atheism – that she believed in nothing – but popular polytheism that believes in anyone and anything as a little “g” god.
Does that sound like you and me – always feeding the next pleasure, climbing the next ladder, exploring the next love venture, chasing the next dollar or glorifying in the next ministry – on our endless threadmill of idolatry?
May God grace and humble us to believe that Jesus and his redeeming Cross love is the one and only thing we need to relentless pursue.
Many sins, one Saviour. Many problems, one solution. Many anxieties, one assurance. Many unknowns, one known. Many illnesses, one healer. Many questions, one answer.
Our search can start and stop at the Cross of Jesus.
“Wherefore thou art great, O Lord God: for there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.”
2 Samuel 7:22 KJV
